That seems reasonable to me
Jacob Singer forced upon me any Steam game of my choosing. So now I am playing Season 1 of Walking Dead!
His generosity shames me! I'M SUPPOSED TO GET HIM THINGS!!!!
I've received a care package from Subotai earlier last week, but haven't gotten to taking and posting photos of the haul yet. But it was SUCH a thoughtful haul! Will be posting photos soon!
Subotai is a VILLAIN!
He teases me with the fact that he has a cast-signed script of an episode of FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS (which he selfishly refuses to part with), and instead sends me this SUPER THOUGHTFUL SMORGASBORD of DELICIOUS VARIETY!!!
First off... Subotai caught wind of my love of Michael Ironside (all those Total Recall gifs, perhaps??). And now, I hold in my hands his authentic autograph!!!
Next: a tactical pen. He said, and I QUOTE:
"What you do is, next time you are at your friend's house and someone slips a TDKR blu-ray into the player, you walk up to the plasma screen, take out the pen, and say "I've had enough of this" just before you smash the steel tip of the pen into the TV screen. I promise your friends will never invite you to watch TDKR at their house-EVER!"
WHO WANTS TO INVITE ME OVER FOR A TDKR VIEWING???
Also... a small box of Ninja Pins! It says they're designed by S. Miyamoto! Is it who I think it is??
Next gift... a USB flash drive! 30 gigs! I can always use more gigs.
Then... a brand new DVD of a film I'd never even heard of called WHERE'S MARLOWE? which he touts as the best movie about making movies! A bold statement! We'll see!
In addition... battery backup for my iPhone or iPod! Great for traveling!
And finally... a series of Canadian paraphernalia!
- Mountie napkins!
- a humorous book about Bigfoot by a Toronto author!
- a sweet carryall bag from the CBC! It's not a purse! It's Canadian!!!
Seriously, a fantastic haul. Thanks a bunch, Subotai, for making this another fun holiday swap!
I can already FEEL myself turning Canadian.
Soon Colin Farrell will hit me.
Holy fucking shit, Ironside.
MrTyres' incredible haul came yesterday. I thought I was getting a Memory Foam pillow, but instead, I got one hell of a four-degrees-of-movies package. Make sure you read along with the notes.
And the punchline to end all punchlines, given this was wrapped with the note on it:
Beautiful work, sir. I'm in awe.
I love how virtually everything Nooj writes suits his avatar to a tee.
And I'm just teasing about it being late. It just stretches out the fun even more, and helps alleviate post-holiday depression. You're actually performing a kindness!
Recieved a suspicious-looking package this morning in the mail. After having my minions x-ray it, we opened it up...
So far so good. Inside, we find...
AHA! It's addressed to my alter-ego! Everything is proceeding as I have forseen. We marvel at the delightful wrapping paper, and the scribbles of the madman upon it. BUT WAIT!
One of my many pets jumps in to survey the scene. After meeting with her approval, we open the package to discover...
A very generous assortment of Blu-Rays! Well played, Mcnooj, well played. But we shall meet again! BUWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
Seriously, these are wonderful, and I needed (and wanted) both of them. I'm assuming the other item hinted at earlier is in a seperate mailing? Or was that just a clever ruse?
Truly the gift that keeps on giving! Thanks, nooj, this is all completely spectacular. Well done.
For the curious, nooj included a handwritten note inside the case. I'll keep that to myself though.
Diva knows me too well already! Spectacular! Even the friend of mine who got all Star Trek stuff for Xmas never knew about these.
Now I just need a functioning viewer...
Nice! Glad you didn't have them. Also, spoiler alert: You have another gift coming.
Whoops! Sorry about how late this is. I totally forgot. I was sick in bed all day and finally had a chance to peruse JGButler's gifts. Obviously NXNW is great (picture quality on the BD is stunning btw) but I also found "Hark a Vagrant" hilarious and it's the best kind of present since it's something I almost certainly never would have thought to buy for myself. So thanks Butler!
No hair pulling here. Mother Nature's got my hairline well under control already.
Glad you liked your stuff--overjoyed you haven't seen Sunset Boulevard yet. Not familiar with the Epicetus book, but I saw Art Decade recommend it to you in another thread. City of Saints and Madmen is a total trip. I haven't read the Lennon/Garant book, but it looks like a blast.
I want to thank everyone who coordinated, sent gifts and just lovingly participated here. This seemed like a huge success. I hope you guys were all as happy with your gift as I was with mine. Anyways, can't wait to do this shit again next year.
Sweet! Having gotten the gifts off eBay (my first time bidding, too!), I was worried that the reels and viewer would be damaged or broken. Glad to hear that they weren't.
I've participated in the Chewer Gift Exchange since its inception and it continues to be one of the few things that keeps me connected to this community. The generosity on display for virtually strangers continues to awe me. Love you all, and I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and a happy New Year!
Well as this was my first year participating, it seems I may have unintentionally siffed Teitr Styrr. After receiving what he sent, reading what others were sent and comparing to what I sent...motherf...sorry dude!
I don't have access to a camera or the gifts, but he got me:
Shutter Island - blu
Drive - blu
Lawrence of Arabia - blu
ET - blu
Furies of Calderon - Jim Butcher
So damn generous man. Once again, I apologize if ya feel stiffed!
Everyone here is so flipping generous and amazing. Happy Holidays everyone.
